Tablet laptop, in a padded sleeveSurface Pro 3 with typecoverNice computer for travelling, as it's light and small. Not easy to use on your knees while sitting in the tent, but we almost never do that.Very nice to have. Sometimes we would like to have a second one to "work" at the same time, but the extra-weight would not be worth it.
